We want what we want and we want it now. We don't want to wait. We don't care about the long term, we'll deal with that later, we just want to get results as fast as possible. This miiiiiight not be the best approach to fat loss. I can tell you from my own experience and my experience with clients that it is absolutely not!
In fact, I think there are two approaches to weight loss (and one usually doesn't work). You can either be playing the short term game or the long term game. The short term game is about speed. It's fueled by impatience which often backfires.
